Day 29: Happy Birthday

Today is the start of Stage 2 on MyBody so this morning I did the first of the MyPower2 workouts and my arms are really aching now as this involves harder boxing combinations. I have lost another 2 lbs this week and a half an inch off my waist. I am finally below 9 stone which I haven’t been for a while so I’m really pleased. The party for feisty daughter went really well but there was a lot of loud singing of spice girls songs but no vomiting or nosebleeds which is always a bonus. Supportive husband and I went for a walk but had to return as the credit card was needed to purchase pizza. Smart son wore headphones and did maths and physics past papers as usual. The we went out for curry and supportive husband and I just had mains while smart son went for the belly busting all you can eat (or eat as much as you dare) buffet.

Today is feisty daughter’s birthday and it’s time to sing happy birthday and cut the Gruffalo cake she insisted on having as (it is ironic apparently). We’re going to take vegan cousin who came for a sleepover back home this morning to darkest Essex (she lives out in the boonies – wouldn’t suit me as it’s too far from anywhere). Then it’s out for an all you can eat Chinese buffet tonight. I think I may be on short rations for the rest of the week to make up for it! It’s also another UK bank holiday so a nice restful family day ahead and possibly a walk past the Lavender farm.
